james13billion got me

went to fire up the bike, and it fired, crank, crank, crank, cough, sputter, die.

hook up brand new battery tender....we'll see if it's just a dead battery.

don't think the gas would have gone bad yet....

if it still don't start after charging it, checking plugs, and then changing the gas....


grrrrrrrrrr



damn you james!



08 sv650, been sitting 3, maybe 4 weeks.

btw, after the battery tender had done it's magic, it still wouldn't start.

but, it tried.

so, I turn the gas about half way open and let it crank, about 3 cranks later and it roared to life. I held it open a bit longer, and then let it idle down.

success!


so, I went for a ride.



fog isn't fun, but it was good to effin get out.

My bike sat for 4ish weeks a few summers ago in the dead heat. It did the same thing. Should I have winterized it?
